The Best Face Wash
I really believe this is the best face wash out there for the price! I am actually not too competitive…so please no haters, this is just my opinion! I love facial products and was a makeup artist for over 15 years. I still do a bit of makeup for friends from time to time. I am also an esthetician and really look into what I use. I love PCA products and I give myself facials on a regular scheduled basis. I want my skin to look young. I also have oily skin and get really bad acne as well. Alba Botanica has the best face wash I have found. Oh and let’s remember, face wash is only a small part of having good, healthy skin.
For those of you with teens or really oily/congested skin, this is a great way to clear it up and have your face feeling renewed and not break the bank. Apply it once a day at first, to make sure it doesn’t dry your skin out, and then you can apply as needed in trouble spots. Listen to your body and don’t overdo it. You can damage your skin and that is definitely not worth it!
I have always had acne prone skin. Since I started living a gluten-free lifestyle and added Shakeology (my superfood meal replacement) to my daily routine, it’s cleared up a lot. Yep, I’m an esthetician with breakouts. Oh well? So make sure you really take a look at your diet. Dairy can also have a lot of negative affects on your acne. Food is a tough area to change, because usually thing hurting us, is the item our tastebuds love the most!
You can find Alba Botanica, the best face wash at Super Supplements or Target. (I prefer Target….because there are so many options and who doesn’t want to roam around Target for a bit!)

Home Remedies for Acne
I am always looking for new home remedies for acne. I have dealt with acne my entire life. It is one of the most annoying things that is a continual battle. To those of you that deal with it as well, you can relate.
This magical combo had been helping me this past week. Melaleuca essential oil and organic extra virgin coconut oil did the trick! I had a funny sore on the edge of my nose that would not heal. I did a little “googling” and after two applications and some vitamin C pill-popping, it’s almost gone! I have found that Google has almost all the answers to everything in the entire world! Then if I need to see it in video form, I go to You Tube!
As a family we try to steer clear of antibiotics as much as possible. We’ve been known to swallow garlic cloves and goofy stuff like that. I swear it works though! 😉 My husband will literally take three cloves, peel them, cut them up into small pill sized cubes, throw them in his mouth and then swallow them with a glass of water!! Our at home gym smells a little garlicky from time to time!!
Now that this bottle of coconut oil is dedicated to skin treatments, I think I will start using it as a body moisturizer (especially on my feet) after the shower. I’ve heard it’s anti fungal, too! Again, my husband only uses coconut oil as lotion for his skin. He doesn’t do well with most lotions, so this is an amazing alternative, that is totally good for you!
Man, now to find more ways to use it!!
I love learning new ideas. Any fun combos you’ve tried and loved, let me know any home remedies for acne?
